    "Good but Incomplete"

    Very good loved it. Only downside is that it is incomplete they leave off the last third of the book which is a short story about what Kate is doing at the same time.

    Story
    "Very Little Kate, Still Fun"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I enjoy this series. The world and characters are fun, full of action and it makes for entertaining, light listening.


    What other book might you compare Gunmetal Magic to and why?

    In comparison to the other books in the series this was the first one to not feature Kate Daniels as the main character. I guess because it is listed under the "Kate Daniels" series I was expecting something different. It threw me off in the beginning, but I quickly figured it out and got over my initial disappointment.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I don't think this is an extreme reaction kind of book. It's fun, full of action and romance, but not overly emotional. This isn't The Notebook. It's more like the Terminator.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this series to just about anyone. If it were a series of movies it would be perfect to watch with your girlfriend. Enough of a chick flick to keep her happy, and enough action and killing for any guy to be able to admit he liked it.

    Story
    "Ilona Andrews = Pure Magic!!"

    My favourite husband & wife writing team has done it again. Solid writing with plenty of humor and enough action & romance that I think even those readers new to the world of Kate Daniels ( The original "Magic" series of which this book is a spinoff of sorts) will enjoy.

    Having said that --- I would still greatly encourage people to read the entire Kate/Curran series as they are FABULOUS. As stated the writing is solid/stellar and no previous knowledge of other books is needed but for those who have read the other series, you will appreciate some of the humor more as you are more well-aquainted with the characters.

    Also, as a reader of both series... it's great to get some answers to things that motivated some of Andrea's actions ---- now I can say IN YOUR FACE to all the naysayers who were blasting Andrea.

    I enjoyed learning more about Andrea's beastkin background; I always enjoy Raphael (smile) ---- Basically, I enjoyed seeing characters I already know and love.... as well as some new (well, almost new) characters as well.

    "Russian Sugar Bear" was it???



    A note on Rene Raudman ---- She may not be on my top 5 list of favorite narrators, but she is also NOWHERE near my list of "can't stand to listen to" narrators either. Another reviewer mentioned her earlier works --- I'm only familar with her in conjunction with Ilona Andrews books and she continues her reading style ---voices, inflections, etc --- so I guess listen to the sample first. Personally, I have enjoyed her readings of both the Kate Daniels/Magic series and the Edge series --- which I also love and adore.

    "Andrea's story continues"

    The beginning of this series, Kate was our main character and her friend Andrea was always there to back her up. Now Andrea, born beastkin, and tortured by the her mother's pack is our main character. At first I was dissappointed but after a few minutes of listening I was hooked. Kate and her mate, your fuzziness, are there to support Andrea as she comes to terms with the fact that the pack in Atlanta will always be at her back, and she can make a big contribution to them. Favorite characters from earlier books are back, as well as a new evil "God" to overcome. Worth the listen as all of the books in this series are.

    "A new and different Prospective."

    Excellent. excellent , excellent.... Well Done; an exciting plot with good details of characters, places and ambiance. a replay on kate's and Curran's mating but that could be over looked; with a book bursting with action, magic and sex. what more could you ask for in a fantasy series.

    The book Gunmetal magic was written from the prospective of Andrea the shifter giving new depth and knowledge of what we understood about the series and the shifter society .

    Story
    "A New Side of Kate Daniels' World"

    This is another excellent excursion into the crumbling but somehow still vibrant Atlanta that forms the setting for the Kate Daniels stories. It features Kate's best friend Andrea Nash in a story of her own. This novel stands alone from but is still linked to Kate's. I love Andrea as a character and it's great to have a novel from her perspective.

    Renee Raudman is an excellent narrator, though the pronunciation of some terms and place names threw me off a little. It's more likely that I'm reading them wrong than that she is but it's still enough to pull me out of the story occasionally.

    "I love Ilona Andrews......."
    What made the experience of listening to Gunmetal Magic the most enjoyable?

    Anytime I can get even the minor glimpse into Curren and Kate's lives I am happy. But I must say listening to Andrea accept her shifter side finally was long over due.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The wonderful mix between to plot and the romance.


    Have you listened to any of Renée Raudman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, she does well with the series. Not as impressed with her narration in Larrissa Ione's books. She is not as consistent between the voices in the book and the Kate Daniels series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes It was a long wait to hear Andrea and Rafael's story.

    too many to recount


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
